I am delighted to report that Robert Blevins of Adventure Books of Seattle is eager to publish the third editions of Hot Air and Escaping Reality. I will let you know when they are ready.
LL-Publications have sent me the proof copy of ARIA: Left Luggage and I am going through it, making ammendments as the proofreader requested. Very handy to have American editors at this stage, pointing out that they don’t use terms like grog. There are also some minor plot continuity errors, which are now fixed. Amazing how these things slip through after being rewritten, redrafted, gone through a critique group and poured over. It will be published this summer and already some famous book reviewers have promised to read it. Waterstones in various towns have agreed to let me do signings. So much to do.
Grandchildren are growing up fast. Amy is talking more legibly and Oliver is making jokes. His dad told him to eat his carrots so he can see in the dark. What did Oliver say? Put the light on, daddy!
I’ve read an exhilirating bizarro – humorous SF book by Ira Nayman. The review is in the above blog. The one I haven’t written yet. See, I’m into alternate time zones.
